I am in Florida, and the rule here is an acre per horse...not sure how it is anywhere else though. 5 acres per horse? That seems alittle absurd.

Its not 5 Acres PER horse. Its 5 acres For 1 horse, and then 1 Additional acre for every additional horse.

It is over-kill, but, in my county, those are the rules. BUT, if you live next to cows, you can have however many horses you want on any amount of acerage. No hows that make sense? 1 Acre next to cows and you have have 1, 4, 7, 20 horses. Its absurd.

Sorry, that one was a typo on my part. I can only imagine if it were five acres per horse... They would definitely be a luxury item for the rich and famous then.

For the most part, Pierce County AC is not very helpful. Additionally, the number of horses per acre may depend on whether or not the person keeping the horses is within the city limits of Tacoma (or another municipality) or in unincorporated Pierce County. For unincorporated Pierce County, the law states one 'livestock' on 1/4 acre and under. If it's over 1/4 acre, then you can have as many as you'd like.

Zoning law here is one hooved animal per quarter but the land must be zoned to keep livestock . You can own ten acres or 100 acres and if it does not have the zoning code for hooved animals you cannot keep hooved animals of any kind.

Laws have varied in each place I've lived county to county. Typical for where I was at in Tx was 2 acres for the first horse and 1 acre per horse after that for some residential areas and areas zoned farmland they just had minimum acres suggested but if the animals were well kept and in good health it didn't matter.

Well, we are in the most liberal, Democratic, county in NC and there are NO county restrictions on farm animals....acreage/number/anything. The only animals with restrictions are exotic ones, e.g. Tigers, etc.

My guess is being the most liberal county in NC is still way more conservative than most of Michigan. That said, don't be surprised to see this happening where you are....
